I would be willing to pitch in some help for an RTE because I'm only a hour north of Wenatchee. There are a number of good places to eat in Wenatchee and the surrounding area which includes the HotRod Café.  Tim

Making this a RTE would be awesome!  Any thoughts on possible dates for this? Obviously it's still winter around here as our weather reminded us these past few days.

Been snowing all day here. Funny AccuWeather on my phone has said that there will be a snow flurry in 15 minutes all day and it's been updating every half hour LOL

I think Rufus was referring to doing a separate RTE to Wenatchee. I could be wrong. But there is probably a good place to eat close by. I think Red Fox mentioned something for the ride for Science.

The weather, cold front here and it's cold cold cold. My dog Pee Wee is hanging out with the heater. Good thing is I know the warmer weather is coming. I noticed the days are getting longer.  :) March is around the corner. A new front tire for the other bike arrived today.

Just a thought for those who are real busy on a Saturday....who says we can't do it on a Sunday. No matter what day someone won't be able to play. The weather is starting to look a lot better. I hope the snow is done for the front half of the year. We should start thinking on this real hard. Idea's? Tim

 Was a date set? Decide and put on calendar.

Hey everybody, how about a date and a plan? I'm still in and think this would be great. Don't want this to die a natural internet death. Let's have it live, or kill it! I vote for living.

Seeing how I'm already missing the rides with friends and waiting is definitely getting harder, bringing this up to see what folks think!

Would love to get this in before the summer ends. Maybe time it with a ride thru Ellensburg/Vantage area for the west side folks. I found this suggested ride idea from SoundRider last year that I did...

As fall is upon us, trying to gauge interest but also hopefully weather and schedule works out. Next tour date is October 13th...

https://www.ligo.caltech.edu/WA/page/lho-public-tours

Hoping to get in the 1st tour at 1:30p as we would need to head back afterwards since daylight is also running short, thinking maybe meeting in Issaquah Starbucks (across from Fred Meyer) for a quick coffee and/or breakfast 7 to 7:30ish, then rolling by 8a. There's an ethanol-free station Grange across from I-90 motorsports south of Starbucks for those coming from other areas.

Rest break in Ellensburg, then head thru Yakima Canyon road and lunch/fuel stop somewhere in Yakima. Then off to Hanford tour stop. Afterwards up for suggestions with some slabbing moments or back roads as time and daylight allows.

Thoughts, interest, company?

If weather permits I am interested. May also depend on replacement of some riding gear, my size in what I want is out of stock everywhere right now.

Don't need the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) to observe the effects of gravity on a Connie.  :(

Though, that would be a very interesting place to visit.
I wonder if snow would prevent me making it to that event?

Hoping those on the central/eastern side can help suggest lunch in Yakima area.  I was planning to take exit 34 (E Nob Hill Blvd) as there are some fuel stations in that area according to the map, but for food not sure so some experienced folks pls let us know good options if possible. Otherwise could just do Safeway for lunch and meeting spot especially those in the south and eastern areas to join us.

After lunch/fuel, taking Hwy 24 to 240 to LIGO.

I'll keep tabs on this thread, that would be amazing.  Hopefully the weather will hold well enough to ride from Hood River.

That's funny Dan, I was thinking of suggesting the same thing. It's been awhile since I ate at Miners though...be hungry. Tim

I'm interested. The suggested meet-up in Issaquah sounds great.

Everyone,

Are we going to make this official? One day ride for all on the 13th? Let's do it!

West siders meet at Starbucks in Issaquah - 6170 East Lake Sammamish Parkway- between 7:00 and 7:30, plan on leaving at 8:00?

Meet others in Yakima at 11:00 at Miner's - 2415 South 1st Street -gives us time to fuel our bodies and bikes with plenty of time to get to LIGO for the 1:30 tour (reservations not required.)

Charlie & Grant - are you in?  Would you make your way to Issaquah or go over 410 and meet in Yakima?

Steve, are you and Bob still planning on this? Will you meet us in Issaquah or do you want us to pick you up on I-90 at the Fall City exit (you'll be going down 203, right?)

Tim, do you want to meet in Ellensburg and ride the canyon with us? We could meet in the Buzz Inn parking lot right off I-90 at Canyon Road.

So, what does everyone think? Go for it?  See you in two weeks? (Weather may cause us to cancel, we can make that decision on Friday the 12th.)

Andy
